Nichole Bloom

Production was recently completed on Model Minority, an indie film written, directed, and produced by long-time ER actress Lily Mariye.

The film’s leading role is played by Nichole Bloom, whom readers of this blog will recognize as Nichole O’Connor, the cute girl with the goofy laugh from that State Farm commercial with Bob Barker. This dramatic starring role is quite a departure from her character in that ad.

Model Minority, a film based on true events (names and places have been changed), tells the story of Kayla Tanaka, a 16-year-old girl who is half-Japanese, half-white, and all-American. She and her sister, 14-year-old Amberlyn, live with their parents Ken (Japanese-American) and Angie (white) in a low-income section of Los Angeles. Kayla aspires to be an artist, but she puts her future in doubt when she becomes involved with a drug dealer.

The film, which also stars Courtney Mun, Chris Tashima, and Jessica Tuck, is scheduled for release in July 2012.

    I BET, THIS SO CALLED FILM IS AS RACIST AS CAN BE, & THE SO CALLED DRUG DEAL, JUST HAS TO BLACK…. “A TYPICAL”, RACIST ASIAN ROLE CASTING. THAT TO ASIANS, ALWAYS FEEL THAT BLACKS, ARE ALWAYS THE ENEMY: THAT THEY ARE TOO GOOD, TO LOVE SIDE BY SIDE WITH THEIR BROTHER & SISTERS OF OTHER RACES, OTHER COLORS, FEELING THAT THEIR SOCIAL & FINANCIAL OPPORTUNITIES, ARE BEST MET, WHEN THEY FIND ALLIANCE, WITH THE ANGLO RACE…… SAME FABRICATION REGARDING CLASS & RACE WARFARE, JUST DIFFERENT FACES, DIFFERENT TIMES, DOING THE SAME OLD RACIST STEREO TYPICAL RECYCLED BULLSHIT….
